The 2019 Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Study Group (FASDSG) meeting was titled "Computational Approaches to Studying Behavioral Control and Individual Change". The theme was reflected in the presentations of two keynote speakers: A. David Redish, Ph.D., who spoke about computational psychiatry and vulnerabilities in decision-making processes, and Kevin Grimm, Ph.D., who spoke about contemporary machine learning approaches to studying individual change. The conference presented updates from three government agencies, and included short presentations by junior and senior investigators showcasing late-breaking FASD research. The conference was capped by H. Eugene Hoyme, M.D., FACMG, FAAP, the recipient of the 2019 Henry Rosett award for career-long contributions to the field.
